It was 1987 when the young Irish rock band U2 took to the stage promoting its fifth studio album, “The Joshua Tree,” combining its sociopolitical sound and its fascination with America.  It was this album with hits like “Where The Streets Have No Names” and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” that shot the already popular group with their punk rock roots into the stratosphere of rock ‘n’ roll stardom.

More than three decades later, U2 reloads it landmark album and takes to the stage at Levi’s® Stadium, Wednesday, May 17, at 6:30 p.m. and fans can enjoy a traffic-free ride on Caltrain.

Caltrain’s weekday schedule offers plenty of southbound service to the Mountain View Caltrain Station. From there, fans will be able to board Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority’s light rail vehicles to Levi’s stadium. Those trips will take about a half-hour.

Caltrain will operate a special northbound train that will depart approximately 75 minutes after the concert, or when full. The train will make all local weekday stops to San Francisco.

Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system: tickets aren’t sold onboard trains but can be purchased at ticket machines at the stations. Fans are encouraged to purchase a Day Pass at Caltrain ticket machines to avoid long lines after the concert. The pass is valid for unlimited rides within zone limits on Caltrain through the last train.

Parking at Caltrain stations costs $5.50 for the day, and permits can be purchased through ticket machines onsite. Paid parking rules are enforced throughout the day.

Caltrain reminds fans to drink responsibly and to remember that alcohol is not allowed on trains beginning at 9 p.m. Food and beverages aren’t allowed on VTA at any time.

About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with limited commute service to Gilroy. Caltrain enjoyed five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 60,000 average weekday riders. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad celebrated 150 years of continuous passenger service in 2014. Planning for the next 150 years of Peninsula rail service, Caltrain is on pace to electrify the corridor, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
